Bringing it all together-Braiding Homeless Funding
Funding to address housing and homelessness are provided by an array of state and federal funding sources to a variety of jurisdictional stakeholders. The majority of these funding sources are one-time which makes it incredibly difficult to establish an effective homeless response system. Only by braiding funding sources are jurisdictional stakeholders able to sustain programs to effectively meet the needs of people experiencing homelessness.
